VIDEO: TEAMSTER REBELLION BOOK BEING READ ON NYC PICKET LINE
Watch this video of an interview with a Marcos, one of the striking workers and a member of Teamsters local 202 at the Hunts Point Produce Market in New York City, January 2021.
He explains why he bought Farrell Dobbs’ Teamster Rebellion: “It teaches you about how the union started. I want to learn more. I want more power. I want more people to have a union.”

Teamster Rebellion is book about the 1934 strikes that built the industrial union movement in Minneapolis and beyond, recounted by a central leader of that battle. It is the first in a four-volume series on the class-struggle leadership of the strikes and organizing drives that transformed the Teamsters union in much of the Midwest into a fighting social movement and pointed the road toward independent labor political action.
